Annual Report

Results by Industry

Our leadership role in sustainable private sector development reflects a special advantage—the depth and breadth of expertise we have acquired over more than 50 years of helping emerging-market firms succeed and grow.

We provide our clients the right mix of capabilities to address their needs, delivering the best of what IFC has to offer.

Consumer & Social Services

IFC is the world’s largest multilateral investor in private health care and education in emerging markets. We invest in these sectors because they are fundamental to human and economic development—health care plays a key role in improving the quality of life, while education is a powerful instrument for reducing poverty and growing human capital.

We work to increase access to high-quality health care and education while also helping strengthen job-creating sectors such as tourism, retail, and property. We help improve standards of quality and efficiency, facilitate the exchange of best practices, and create jobs for skilled professionals. IFC also works closely with the World Bank and governments to tailor strategies for countries that lack adequate resources.

We focus on helping partner companies increase development impact. In addition to making direct investments in socially responsible companies, we also share industry knowledge and expertise, fund small enterprises, promote higher medical and education standards, and help clients expand services to low-income groups.
